Over the series I had two jokes make the script but not the final edit. They were:
1 The World Pasty Championship has included a category using ingredients from road-kill. Judges declared the winning entry to be "the dog's bollocks". https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6766565/Pastry-fans-world-descend-Cornwall-World-Pasty-Championships.html

2 A study has found most NHS knee replacements carried out today will still be working in 25 years - unlike most NHS hospitals. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-47238523

Very good, both.
